I have worked with Jayme and NAR for a number of years now and have never been disappointed with the care and professionalism shown to the cats, and to the potential adopters. I do the trapping myself, but use NAR to get the cats neutered, vaccinated and tested. Some of the cats are returned to the colony while others are fostered and socialized. Recently, I trapped a litter of four kittens: two were returned to the colony and two stayed with me to be socialized. Once they were ready to be adopted, Jayme posted the one on the NAR website (the other already had an adopter) and found her a good fur-ever home. I have worked with other cat rescue organizations and NAR is definitely a 5 star in my book!

While looking for a special cat to adopt online, we found a precious little boy who was with NAR. Despite the fact that I had moved 1.5 hours away from Philadelphia, I decided to apply and was pleased with the care and amount of attention they had given the kitten I was adopting - it was clear these folks were animal lovers and deeply cared about the animals and where they were going to a forever home. He has turned out to be one of my most precious pets ever and I'm grateful for their assistance in placing him in our home!

I adopted my first cat from Northeast Animal Rescue in 2002. He was the most beautiful boy and fit in so well with my existing crew of 3 cats. When I lost him suddenly to a bladder infection and an inattentive veterinary office I was heartsick. 2 months later, I went back to NAR with the intention of adopting one particular cat. Instead, 2 different cats literally picked *me* out and once again my household was complete. Or was it? Years later, when I lost one of my older cats to kidney disease I knew it was time. Jayme told me about the perfect kitten for me, an orange tabby named Leo. When I went to the foster home where Leo was in residence, it happened again. Not one, but two! I had to keep Leo and his sister Delma together. I truly cannot say enough about the amazing work Jayme and her crew of wonderful foster parents do for cats in need of loving homes. They give the bulk of their free time, their homes and their hearts to this organization and are making a difference for the cats AND their prospective adopters!

Win the lottery so I could provide them with their own property on which to build a luxury home for the cats!!

Northeast Animal Rescue is about caring and compassionate people who have a genuine love for cats. The foster pet parents a tremendous job in preparing the cats left in their care to live in adoptive homes. We adopted two companion cats on April 16, 2011. Piper and Leo are wonderful pets thanks to the care they received from Northeast Animal rescue.

After our first two cats passed away, we decided to adopt from Northeast Animal Rescue. We saw the cats the organization had for adoption on display at PetsMart. We were inpressed with the detailed biography each cat had indicating its known background and whether the cat would fit in with a household that had other cats, dogs or children. The cats received excellent volunteer care while they waited to be adopted in their purrfect furever homes. Northeast Animal Rescue is unique because it is not a shelter housing cats in cages. Rather, it is a netowrk of loving foster homes that provide individual care for cats as they await adoption. We adopted two adult cats who are beautiful members of our household thanks to the loving care they received from Northeast Animal Rescue. We like to donate to Northeast Animal Rescue as "chip-in" donors for cats that require special but expensive medical treatment for disease or injury.

I adopted a kitten from the SPCA who died one day after I brought him home and I was crushed. I went to the PetSmart to buy food for my other pets when I saw two of the cutest kittens for adoption. I filled out an application and was called two days later by Jayme to come pick up my "kids". I have been just delighted with them. So much so, that two years later I adlpted another kitten from Jayme and Northeast Animal Rescue. Jayme and her volunteers do an outstanding job of resucing and caring for cats and kittens that are looking for their forever homes.

It is a true pleasure to write about Northeast Animal Rescue. I have adopted 3 kitties from NAR over the past few years. Although some are kept at the local PetSmart, any time I stop by they are clean, well fed and if a volunteer is there, they are running arond and playing.
NAR is very
conscious of the people they allow to adopt and they do a complete backgrond check on all prospective "parents".
Jayme is a real gem and so dedicated to rescuing feral cats and helping those living on the street.
Great work NAR

My daughter just adopted her second cat through Northeast Animal Rescue. Jayme Bader was very accommodating, available and patient. She helped us choose the cutest little guy! She has offered her services and extended herself to all of our needs. My mother has also adopted through this agency and I have never seen her so happy. Jayme has helped me through the process of adopting a blind cat through ASPCA which was going to be euthanized due to her disability. This organization has a true mission and is devoted to rescuing these beautiful animals who cannot speak for themselves.I would not deal with anyone else and will continue to support Northeast Animal Rescue. Keep up the good work.

Northeast Aninal rescue is a dedicated organization. Thnaks to Jayme Bader, I rescued a blind cat who was appoximately 1 year old. She was going to be put down and Jayme put an urgent request on a social media sight. My family has adopted 2 more from her and her efforts need to ge recognized and applauded. The care and attention that these cats receive is beyond words.

I would not go anywhere else to adopt a cat or kittens. NAR is a dedicated organization and will go to extremes to save an animal's life.Their care and compassion exceeds all expectations. I have adopted quite a few cats from NAR and woud not hesitate to deal with them again.

Several months ago, I knew I'd be moving into my own apartment, and thought that it was time to own my very first cat. My best friend had adopted two cats from this rescue several months ago, and I knew that she had a great experience, so I thought I would try to find my perfect cat through them. First, I filled out the application, and then started looking at the many cats they had in foster care that were up for adoption. I wanted a special needs cat, as I know that special needs animals are harder to place than cute cuddly kittens. So I narrowed my choices down to several cats. I got approved to adopt a cat, and started inquiring about the few I had thought would be perfect fits for me. Unfortunately, or what i thought was unfortunate, they did not feel that the cats I wanted were good fits for me, my lifestyle, and my personality. I respected that, as it clearly showed that they cared more about finding the perfect home for both their cats and their potential adopters. Then they sent me a photo of a special needs cat that I had overlooked, simply because I thought he was ugly. I said as much, but they insisted that I meet him, as they were sure he was the perfect fit for me. I begrudgingly agreed, and set up a time to meet him at the vets office where he was being fostered. When I got there, they put me in an exam room, and brought in this skinny, ugly, black and white cat. I was sitting on the floor, and this cat immidiately came over to me, head butted me, bit me, rolled over, and started purring, all in a matter of 6.5 seconds. It was love at first site. I am forever grateful that they said "no" to the other cats, and insisted I visit with this one, as he is most definitely the perfect cat for me. He has the cat version of cerebral palsy, but has no idea that him falling all the time is not normal. He loves to head butt, and play, and snuggle and purr. He has gained some weight, and his personality never ceases to amaze me. Sometimes I think he thinks he is a dog, as he certainly begs for human food like one! I named him Loki, which means "mischievious" as he is definitely a little trouble maker. I no longer find him ugly, and in fact, now that he's gained some weight, he's actually a very handsome fella. I am so very grateful that this rescue makes sure that their cats and kittens find the best possible homes for both them, and their new human. Loki was a cat I never would have looked at at my own, and I am so grateful that they insisted we meet. He is the perfect cat for him, and I know that he is very grateful that I am now his human. He was meant to be put to sleep because of his condition, but the vet and rescue refused, and although he waited 5 months for me to find him, we are the perfect match. I love my Loki, and I love what this organization does, as they absolutely put the well being of their foster cats and kittens first. I would recommend them to anyone!

None. They put their felines first, and that is all that matters.

During the summer we had kittens born under our shed. I tried for two months to find someone to help me trap them so they could be socialized. Finally someone sent me to North East Animal Rescue, they came out to my house, brought food, traps, etc...spend an evening at the house trying to help me trap the kittens. By this time they were too old to be socialized, could be trapped neutered and returned. We had no luck trapping them that evening. They told me how to get them to stay in the area so they could come out again to try to get the kitties. Again no luck...These are some of the most caring, gentle, loving women I have ever met...

Recently we lost our cat Penelope that had been in our lives for 17 years. After her passing my father spoke of getting another cat because of how lonely he was. My family had never adopted a pet before so I did some research using Petfinder, and found out the great rescues in the area. Northeast Animal Rescue was one of them. You could tell just by their website how dedicated they were to their cats in trying to find them the best homes. So after some time looking through the website my dad put in a application to adopt a cat. Two days later he got a phone call telling him he was approved. Jayme made the adoption process easy by talking with my dad thoroughly about what kind of cat he was looking for. She recommended to him Cherokee Rose a dilute calico cat with the personality he was looking for. They set up a date and time for my father to meet Cherokee Rose. We met Jayme at their Great Northeast Petsmart location so we could meet her. When you walk in the first thing on your left side is where some of their cats are kept and you can't miss them. At the time we arrived the volunteers were cleaning out the litter boxes, cages, giving them food, and the love and attention they deserve. We were taken into a back room to meet Cherokee Rose with one of the volunteers and Jayme. Right away my dad knew she was the one for him. She is so sweet, loving, gentle, and well behaved my dad was ecstatic. Jayme described Cherokee Rose to my dad exactly how she was. Jayme knows so much detail of each of her cats it is simply amazing. After the meeting, and my dad deciding to get her Jayme walked around with my father in the store to show him exactly what Cherokee liked as far as eating, and playing. You could tell that she takes the time with each of her cats in understanding them so that way they can go to a home fit perfectly for them. I was really surprised she did that, and it was a lot of help. She made the adoption go easy and not overwhelming. The volunteers were extremely nice, and friendly. I am glad we got Cherokee Rose from them. I would highly recommend Northeast Animal Rescue to anyone in the Philadelphia area. They are simply amazing and can not express how greatly I appreciate all that they did for my father, and for helping Cherokee Rose find her forever home.
